Skin Conditions in Dark Skin
Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (Ingrown Hairs of the Beard) and Black Skin continued...
Another solution is to simply shave less often (or grow a bear), and when you do shave, soften the beard with soapy lather and never shave against the direction of the stubble. Sometimes, exfoliating skin scrubs used before shaving can help.
Additionally, dark-skinned men who use a razor for trimming hair on the back of their necks can develop a similar problem known as acne keloidalis nuchae or folliculitis keloidalis. In this instance, the bumps may itch and occasionally become infected. When this happens, oral antibiotics and topical acne products, or sometimes topical or injected cortisone treatments, can help. If lesions persist and/or become severe, surgery may be necessary.
